an hour. we have subsequent meetings here, secretary of state john kerry, secretary of defense shuts hegel, director of intelligence james clapper and others at the white house. however senior administration officials stress that is for previously scheduled meeting of national security principals, so nothing really specifically to do, nor was unscheduled specifically because of the events in boston, that was earlier this morning. news from capitol hill according to bret baier of fox news saying officials briefed lawmakers on capitol hill telling them they really want to get this second suspect alive find out perhaps if there are any more people involved, find out whether they have any training overseas or if they were radicalized in the united states or overseas and that has final implications to this investigation when you consider taking him alive versus not so that is something they're working on. we got everything in boston where all eyes in washington are right now from governor deval patrick saying there are continuing developments, can't talk about them now but talk about them later
.i.t. technologies cut across every sector of our economy and our national defense infrastructure. our relatively modest 20-year investment in nitr-d programs has contributed immeasurably to our economic and national security by enabling innovation and job creation in the n.i.t. and providing american students with the skills to fill these jobs. let's re-authorize this program today and ensure that it remains strong. i want to thank my friend, mrs. lummis, for reintroducing a bipartisan bill once again in this congress and i also would like to thank my staff and in sokolo for their hard work on this bill and i urge my colleagues to support h.r. 967 and reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman reserves, the gentleman from texas is recognized. mr. smith: i yield five minutes to mrs. lummis the sponsor of this legislation and who chairs the subcommittee of the science, space and technology committee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from wyoming is recognized for five minutes. mrs. lummis: thank you, mr. speaker. i want to start by thanking chairman smith and
flow is going into the defensive sector of stocks. while nobody is watching the money is going into the bond market. these are all warning signs saying you know what? maybe we're at temporary top. maybe we need a correction here. david: gene, you see the warning signs. you see the dow pulling back to 14,000, right? >> that is correct. i do think there are signs which the guest already mentioned. there is weakness of oil to be concerned about over the near term. there is correlation with the oil and stock market since the start of this cycle. weakness in oil could portend investors worries that the economies are slowing down not just in china but globally as well. so that will probably put pressure on the market. the other thing too, we're in the earnings season and this might be the quarter that doesn't delight. that is that we do get some dispoints manned -- disappointments and we get stiff reactions to the disappointments. lori: bob, you were cautious yet looking for stocks to show gains for the year. what do you think will get us past these bumps in the road? >> i think the
, defense secretary is in israel for the first stop of his week-long mideast trip. it's his first mideast visit as defense secretary. he will talk about serious civil war and the nuclear program. he will talk about u.s. arms deal with israel. this morning israel and the u.s. are both focused on preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. and john kerry is wrapping up a trip to istanbul. to push ahead with mideast peace efforts. he also announced a new $100 million aid package that will assist fighters. secretary kerry says the additional money will double the nonlethal assistance to syrian opposition. it will increase aid. secretary kerry says the situation in syria is at a critical moment and the bloodshed needs to stop. the united nations estimates the fighting killed more than 70,000 people and they are asking the syrian president to step down. >>> more than a decade after the september 11 attack on the world trade . crews started sifting through the debris at the beginning of the month. since then, more than two dozen human remains have been found. more than 2700 people died at the
are again, a defensive day by and large. the big question i got early this morning is what the heck happened in germany? i don't have an answer for you, and some people are calling it a mini flash crash. the dax dropped 180 points in like, eight minutes right after the open and i don't have an explanation and there is a series floating around about fat figure trades and it was very unusual to see that. germany is now down eight in a row and we are are down 1.7% in germany. france was down 1.5% and there were many knock-on effects as a result of this and that's all i can tell you about it. carl, i think you were mentioning these ping-pong markets and that's the other big topic overnight. so you are down 234 on monday and you're up 160 on tuesday. you are down 103 on wednesday here and it's very tough for active traders to take positions. you get a lot of complaints about this stuff. you get stripped out every day depending on which side you're buying protection on, going long or going short and it's hard to take positions and it gets frustrating for active traders and of course, you can stand
at a cost of $12 billion. the official position of taiwan's ministry of national defense remains committed to procuring those submarines from the u.s. however, as the u.s. stopped making these diesel submarines many years ago, the sale has been stalled. i know we worked with france and some of our allies on this. could you advise what the current status of this submarines being acquired by taiwan is? and finally, you don't necessarily have to comment on this. if you'd like to you can, but former -- but the former president languishes today in a jail cell in taiwan. to me it smacks of the criminalization of politics. . stoot extent this administration communicates with the president i urge you to urge president mah to do the humanitarian thing, president chen's health is failing. i now yield to you, thank you. >> thank you, congressman. i appreciate it. i'll take that and just follow up on it. let me see what we can do about that. on burma, you are absolutely correct. there will be bumps in the road. i hope not big ones. obviously things are happening today that were unimaginable a few year
you were in china that you suggested the united states would reduce our missile defense system in asia for exchange, in exchange for chinese help with north korea. it seems to me that even though we're being threatened by nuclear attack by the north korean government, first of all, is that an accurate statement? and if so, explain that if you would. >> no, not an accurate statement. i think it was corrected while i was over there. it was reporting to that effect. there was no offer, no deal, no contemplation of it. what i did say publicly and i will say it again, is that the president took specific deployment steps of missile defense in direct response to north korea. and it stands to reason that if the north korean threat disappears, there would be a logical question of whether or not th that same level of deployment is necessary. it's all, i stated, was sort of a fact based on the rationale of deployment itself. >> do you think the united states should give aid to north korea of some type to temper their saber rattling, which they seem to do, about this time ever you? >> no. >> thank
for the quarter. sector to sector, defense sectors doing better, utilities, health care, and telecom. back to you. melissa: thanks so much. lori: fbi confirms preliminary tests on a letter sent to president obama tested positive for ricin. rich edson has the latest. rich, when you hear news like this coming after the bombings in boston, you understand why the fear trade is in play here on wall stroat. >> absolutely. in washington, d.c. as well. this is the nation's capitol in a heightened state of sensitivity this after three suspicious packages now all clear from u.s. senate office buildings, a report we had brought you last hour. the u.s. capitol police have taken care of the packages in the senate office building that are now all cleared. the letters, one sent to the president of the united states, the other two a u.s. senator. this from the fbi saying filters in a second government mail screening facility, preliminarily tested positive for ricin this morning and mail from that facility is tested. there's no indication of a connection to the attack in boston. also, u.s. senator carl levin, a d
, but these deflationary pressures have been in play since the end of january when commodities started falling, defensive sectors started leading. you get the sense that something's happening, you get the feeling that something's about to hurt and then the spasm happens. when you have deflationary junctures, which is what every part of the market place is seeing is happening right now, that $85 billion a month is not enough from the fed -- >> you're making reference to how much they're buying every month when it comes to securities out? >> correct. >> peter anderson, bank of america may have set the tone this morning with that disappointing earnings report, yes? >> y >> yes, it was. and that's symptomatic of the -- >> peter, hang on one second. we'll have to do this for the next couple of hours as more news continues to break. let's go to sue herrera with the latest. what do you have, sue? >> bill, our team on the ground in boston is reporting to us that the federal courthouse in boston is now being evacuated. you're looking at a live picture right now of people leaving that courthouse. we don't know why
government is increasingly held in such low regard by the american people. but for the left the defensive crouch at least makes sense. liberalism's main purpose today is to defend its past gains from conservative reform. but negativity on the right, to my mind, makes no sense at all. the left has created this false narrative that liberals are for things, and conservatives are against things. when we concede this narrative even just implicitly, we concede the debate before that debate even begins. and yet too many of us, elected conservatives especially, do it anyway. we take the bait. a liberal proposes an idea, we explain why it won't work, and we think we've won the debate at that moment. but even if we do, we reinforce at ivat i'm talking about; winning battles while we're losing the war at every step. this must be frustrating to the scholars of the heritage foundation who work every day producing new ideas, ideas about what conservatives can be for. but it should be even more frustrating to the conservatives around the country that we as elected conservatives were, in fact, elected to
cold war world. he set up -- he set up a defense structure that cold war started with harry truman and ended with ronald reagan. and now he's considered one of the near great presidents. >> i've always found it fascinating how in realtime we build up and tear down presidents. historians do the same thing. there was a time period 20 or 30 years when historians were giving truman not much credit and there was some revisionism in the late '90s. and we've seen it with grant, with polk, we'll see it with other presidents. >> right. and you look at george bush and 30, 40 years from now, obviously our pearl harbor is 9/11. and a lot of people, historians going to say america wasn't attacked again during the rest of his term over the next seven years. and painted in broad colors, broad strokes, he's going to be judged first and foremost for that. >> what's going on in the aftermath of boston. barack obama has to start worrying about his legacy and isn't going to be enough. does he want his legacy to be i failed? are there going to be any excuses big enough for history. he's got to figure o
/2 months of testimony. defense attorneys for jodi arias have rested their case. the trial is far from over. later today the prosecutor is set to call rebuttal witnesses. jodi arias admits to killing her ex-boyfriend. she insist it was self defense. if convicted of murder she faces the death penalty. the trial is expected to last several more weeks. >>> the judge in the jackson family lawsuit against concert promoter aeg is fed up. the jackson family is seeking millions from the promoter in the civil lawsuit. the judge says from now on she will not consider any more requests from potential jurors to leave the case except for medical emergencies. the judge has been swamped with last minute excuses from would-be jurors and she says she is concerned that the jury pool is dwindling fast. one man claimed he simply dislikes michael jackson and his entire family. >> think a lot of people may want to be on the jury. >> i don't understand. >>> powerful voice in gospel music silenced, george beverly shea, performed hundreds of millions as part of billy graham's evangelical crusades, performed in fron
that we have provided by the department of defense. if that changes, we will have to look and see if we can accommodate that change, and if not, then we will have to say we have a requirement for resources. >> thank you very much, and i look forward to sitting down with you to look at the matrix that brought about such a change in three months, and let me just say, mr. secretary, i was not addressing the increased number of claims coming in the door, i was addressing the number of claims that are actually processed and determined, and that does not seem to be getting better. >> thank you. >> thank you, mr. chairman. i will try to ask two questions in too short a period of time. it's homelessness on the one hand, suicides on the other. how do you pick the tragedy, the worst tragedy? up to 22 suicides a day. you are making an enormous role in mental health, the experts and the support staff. it will take time to get that into the system and trained, too. how do you look at the general population, starting with ptsd, and as it gets into the mental health and terrifies themselves and raises
to fund the construction of the national bio anding a row defense facilities in kansas. we've talked about. this i'm sure we'll talk about it more today the and i understand the importance of studying animal diseases, but i hope we can avoid providing full funding, $700 million some, full funding, to 2014 alone, for a multi-year construction probably. y building a building in lodge cal segments, taking away resources from other facilities like i.c.e. and the coast guard and fema, maybe even management moneys that we need from the department. and finally, i'm concerned by proposed cuts and the support that the homeland security provides to state and local governments and first responders through homeland security grants, exercises in training and as we saw clearly this week in state and local officials are the ones who will inevitably be on the front line responding to terrorist attacks. my friend always reminds us we need to be risk-based and we need to keep that in mind particularly as we consider these grants to our state and local colleagues. while acknowledging that our approach must b
there and that's why i've repositioned missile defense systems to guard against any miscalculation on their part. >> on the budget, is this your last best final offer to republicans? >> what i tried to do is put forward a budget that i think is a realistic compromise. >> would you go farther on entitlement cuts? >> it does not give republicans everything they want, frankly it doesn't reflect everything i would like to see. it puts forward some of the ideas the republicans had suggested around entitlement reform that i think are reasonable policy. >> they say it's not enough and it's not enough to make a deal, would you go farther? >> i think that before we go anywhere, right now we've got to see from republicans what exactly is it that they want to do. i mean, when they say they want to go farther, what do they want to do? what are they putting on the table. >> you've got democrats a little mad at you, too, saying you've cut social security and medicare and now this is going to come back and haunt them in their races. >> part of what we have to think about, whether we're democrats or republicans
